Principal's Message

Welcome, Roadrunner Community, to the 2022-23 School Year!

I hope you are looking forward to the new 2022-2023 school year, as there is No Place Like Bell!

Where else can you walk around and have the whole community pull together?
Where else can you walk around and have the whole community meet the hardships head-on with resilience?
Where else can you walk around and have the whole community put the needs of students first?
           There is No Place Like Bell!            #TheRoadrunnerWay!

Reflecting on our community's efforts through the pandemic made me think of the Japanese art form of Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the art of mending broken pottery with lacquer mixed with precious metals. Instead of hiding the breakage, Kintsugi celebrates the mending and shows us the need to widen our perspective to look for opportunities.

The community's sacrifices did not go unnoticed! It is time to celebrate Bell's journey that mended our community during a difficult time! Time to celebrate that Bell went through the tough times and made improvements to meet the students' needs to succeed.

The administration team at Bell is very excited to open this school year with a fresh perspective and looks forward to bringing us back to the basics of learning as a school community. At Bell, we are dedicated to ensuring all students access a relevant and challenging curriculum while providing the support they may need to excel.

Our GGUSD strategic plan is our focus at Bell to guide our decision-making.
Goal 1: All learners will develop the academic skills necessary for continual individual growth towards mastery of standards.
Goal 2: All learners will develop the personal skills necessary to achieve educational and social goals.  
Goal 3: All learners will be prepared for lifelong success in their intended career paths.

I am also excited to warmly welcome our NEW teacher & NEW AP to our Roadrunner team!

  • Timothy Vu Math/Life Science Teacher

As your principal, I am excited to welcome our community to another school year. We have built a solid foundation and now continue to add layers of quality to our school. We will focus on growing our good school climate and atmosphere to ensure that all students, every day, have a positive learning experience.

Warm wishes for a school year filled with blessings!
